Delta Blues. It whispers and shouts of places beyond flesh and bone. Doc MacLean was accompanist to some of the Mississippi's finest Delta songsters. Today, nearly thirty years after his first acoustic recordings and blues festival appearances, Doc MacLean is being rediscovered by a new generation of Delta blues audiences.
At a time when mainstream blues have become more commercialized, more removed from reality, more appropriated and more obscured by young and pretty faces, the rediscovery of the Delta is especially important. Witness a veteran performer whose career spans 30 years and is distinguished by direct association with some of the finest first generation blues musicians. Doc MacLean. Delta blues. Unbroken time like a chain tied to something deep inside.
